Musings From A Musical Mind

People Watching

GotStyle - The Menswear Store

I have always been a ‘people watcher’.  If I go anywhere out of the house – I am most curious about what people are doing, acting like and saying – and nothing is more amusing to me then watching people at a crowded shopping mall or restaurant.   Especially Christmas time.  But because I can’t get my dear husband to step inside a mall at this time of year – if I go it is usually by myself or with my daughter.

The other day I got Greg really close –  K&G menswear not far from Southcenter mall.  They were having this ‘buy 1 get 2 free’ suit sale and EVERYONE was there.  It’s interesting to watch men shop for clothes – and painful to watch them look for a suit – especially if they are by themselves with no female unit along side.  Always quite amusing.

We finally found a couple of suits that would work for Greg (with some alteration) and he begrudgingly went to the men’s fitting room to try the pants on.  The tailor had a measuring tape around his neck and a clipboard in his hand – and there must have been 20 guys in the back by the fitting room – waiting their turn to stand up next to the mirror and have the tailor ‘fix’ and measure them.  So they would wait – with their new pants on and looking extremely uncomfortable standing there.  Like lost little rabbits – all in a line – very funny and GREAT people watching opportunity for me 🙂

How different women are when they shop.  We are much more private about it.  We would never (and I mean never) stand in a line of 20 other women waiting for a tailor to ‘nip and tuck’ us a little.  Nope – I can safely say that would NEVER happen.  Did I say never?  Women are very concerned about their shape, weight and how they appear in new clothes – and often won’t even venture out of the dressing room when trying something new on.  If it isn’t working – we would NEVER subject a room full of strangers to it.  Never.

So therefore I was highly amused at the ‘brave’ and ‘scared’ little rabbits all in a row – standing there because their girlfriend or wife made them.  Guilty as charged.

But Greg did get two new suits for his birthday/Christmas this year – and he didn’t need much alteration at all – and what a great deal we got!  Two suits for $150!  And they’re really nice too!

Here’s hoping you have a fun day of ‘people watching’ if you’re in to that and get much amusement from it.  Remember:  someone is watching you too – make it good 🙂


God Bless
